HP PSC 1315 - TROUBLE WITH VERSION 4.2.0 INSTALLATION


Hi -- Hope this helps, it worked for me. Firstly, I strongly suggest you click http://www.revouninstaller.com/download-free-portable.php and save the file, then run the app. The built-in software uninstaller in Windows often leaves garbage behind in folders, files, and the registry that can make future installations fail. REVO is really good at getting rid of ALL of the crap so a clean re-install is possible. The above link is for their totally free portable version -- no crap and you don\'t have to install anything to use it. That said, uninstall all the software, then open your device manager and locate the entry for your device, right-click and select uninstall. DO check the box that says "delete the driver software for this device" so that you will be starting clean. After uninstalling, unplug the USB cable to your device and reboot.
After the reboot, Do NOT plug in the USB cable yet -- First, insert the driver CD and start the setup program. Wait until the software tells you, then plug in the USB cable and continue following the on-screen directions. Once everything installs, it may tell you to reboot, if so, don\'t try using the device until you do. After the reboot (or after the install finishes if it doesn\'t make you reboot) you should be good to go again.
I have had this problem repeatedly when trying to re-install drivers for various HP Products, and this has (so far, anyway) worked for me in XP, Windows 7 and Windows 8.
Good Luck!

When my laptop is turned on, it shows, We apologize for the inconvenience, but windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this. If your computer stopped...


You have corrupt or deleted windows files or possibly a hardware error. The first thing is to try a repair using a Windows XP CD that came with your system.
XP REPAIR INSTALL 1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order. 2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below. This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft Windows XP to run on your computer: To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.
  • To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.
  • To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.
3. Press Enter to start the Windows Setup: do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you do not want to load Recovery Console). I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R". 4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations. 5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. 6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact. 7. You will need to apply Windows updates after this procedure.

I found boot error 'bootmrg is missing, Presss CTRL+ALt+Del' to restart & it never starts


Hi,
Hi,

You could try a repair of xp this will keep your files.


1. Put your Windows XP Install CD into your CD-ROM drive.

2. Reboot your computer.

3. Let your system boot off of the CD.

4. Let the Setup go through the first part of the Installation procedure.

5. When you come to the screen in which it says "Welcome to Setup." press Enter to Setup Windows XP.

6. Press F8 to agree to the End User License.

7. Let the Setup search your system for previous versions of Windows.

8. When the Setup is finished searching your system, select your Windows XP Installation and press the R key on your keyboard to start the Repair Procedure.

This is the part that might make you nervous . The Setup will delete all major system files and then replace them with new copies.

You will have to download all of the updates from Microsoft Windows Update again because it replaces the files.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Good Luck and have a nice day.

rating the solution is highly appreciated.

Cant install windows 7? i put the cd in and go to auto boot but it gives me a code 5 error.


To resolve Windows 7 Error Code 5, all you need to do is start the installer through a different installer. Either find an old Windows XP boot disk and then direct it over to the Windows 7 installation DVD and run Setup.exe. This should kick off the installer normally and allow you to install the operating system.

You might find it difficult to get hold of windows XP keys since Microsoft stopped selling it.
If you get on google and search for something called TinyXP (rev09). I think that this willl solve your problem.
